The Autcraft no swearing rule

By AutismFather ao - Posted Nov 19, 18

Since this happened two separate times just this weekend, this apparently needs to be repeated:

Autcraft is a no swearing server. Not even inappropriate language or topics. There are children on the server as young as 6 years old, many are between 8 and 12. Their parents do not want their children hear/reading things that may upset them, or that they have no business reading.

This includes books, signs and private messages, not just public chat.

Two separate times this weekend, friends were playing together on the server, never talking in public chat, only ever talking to each other in private and both times, one of the friends said a very bad swear word that resulted in our plugins auto kicking them and removing them from the whitelist.

Why are we this strict? Why not let two friends talk this way in private?

Because we've seen many, MANY times where people forget to put the '/' before their messages, or where the server experienced a hiccup or some other accident or mistake where what should be private ends up being shared with the entire server.

We understand completely that some players, especially our older players, don't like having to censor themselves just because there are children on the server. But you know what? That's the way it is.

I've said it many times before and I'll keep repeating it... our server rules are not open to your own selective interpretation. When it says "no swearing," it means no swearing. It doesn't matter where you write the words, or how old you are, or what your opinion of the rules is... you do not swear. Period.

I'm not trying to be mean. But the whole point of this server is to keep players safe. All players. And not being able to swear is not, in any way jeopardizing your safety. But it is ensuring the safety of those much younger than you.

Also, if you do find yourself removed and would like to be back on the server, promising to keep the language family friendly, then all it takes is an email to me, a message on our website or even a message to our Facebook page. Let me know you made a mistake and won't do it again and I'll re-add you right away.

But again... no swearing is no swearing. Period.
